NeoGraft requires a doctor who is skilled in restoration treatments, as the technique uses a handheld, manual device. There is minimal downtime with NeoGraft, allowing the patient to return to normal activities within a few days. The system is also minimally invasive. There are no stitches or staples, and NeoGraft does not require the use of surgical cutting tools, such as scalpels.
Patients who are considering a NeoGraft hair restoration should consult with a qualified and experienced doctor. At Ransom/MD, we use NeoGraft to target specific areas of the scalp to negate any impact on hair density and ensure the results of treatment look completely natural. Dr. Ransom understands how to group hairs together for a full look with even density and flow.
Artas is a robotic system that uses algorithms to perform follicular unit extraction. However, the system has a number of restrictions. The patient must have a straight, dark hair type and extraction concentrates on the middle circumference of the head. The Artas system also uses larger punches than many other techniques, which can result in a number of healing complications.
The Artas system has great potential. However, until improvements are made to the system and technique, it cannot compete with the skilled hands of Dr. Ransom. At Ransom/MD, we carry out a complete consultation to determine the best treatment for you. All our techniques are designed to offer patients of different hair types and degrees of balding with a suitable option for hair restoration.
